2 suspect nabbed for stealing diesel worth R142K at Mpumalanga mine

Two suspects have been arrested for diesel theft at Clenco Mine in Ogies, Mpumalanga on Wednesday night, Hawks’ Directorate for Priority Crime Investigation (DCPI) confirmed.

According to Hawks spokesperson Captain Dineo Sekgotodi, the suspects – aged 33 and 42 – were allegedly caught red-handed while stealing diesel from the pipelines by Protea Coin security guards.

“It is alleged that an employee of Clenco Mine colluded with the diesel truck driver to steal the diesel from the pipelines using the tag of one of the mine tankers which was parked in the workshop,” Sekgotodi said in a statement on Thursday.

“During the arrest, 11,425 litres of diesel was already pumped into the tanker with an estimated value of R142,000.”

She further said that the suspects are expected to make their first appearance at the Ogies Magistrates Court on Friday, 15 January 2021.
